Spring: a poem by three Residents

Spring: a poem by three Residents

Written in January by Birtley Residents, Mary Mirecki, Iris Newton and Pat Scrase, the following poem captures the very essence of spring in the countryside.


A peaceful new day, with vibrant blue sky

I listen intently to birds chirp and cry


Many buds now bloom into life

Finally giving up the winter strife


The air is fresh, with a gentle breeze

Aeroplanes leave white trails with great ease


The trees branch out, with new leaves shiny green

And sweet smelling blossom, the best I’ve seen


The lambs hop and skip in fields of green grass

Whilst the odd clouds above arrive and then pass


We are now so thankful that spring is here

And we embrace this season with jolly good cheer!
